  • Person never payed for my IPhone 6 that was for sale

    $430.00Unresolved

    This person agreed to purchase a Phone from me for $400. This person's name is Kenneth Currie from North Carolina. I am a resident of Puerto Rico. Used text messages to contact me. Used more than 60 text messages to communicate with me. Used a phony email from PayPal to establish there had been an overdrawn in his account, and asked to be sent $220 via western union to his address, so I could get paid. Posed as a false PayPal agent, using these false emails more than 8 times. I tried to contact him after calling PayPal and through them, I was advised a fraud had been confirmed. He never did pay or no withdrawal was made to his "PayPal account". I sent him the merchandise through USPS from PR. This transaction was done on 1/26/2017 at 5:40 pm. I have all the documents and I am willing to provide evidence. Person doesn't answer my calls nor my text messages, although before shutting down his phone, he said he was going to send me my phone back on 1/07/2017. Has never happened. Person is retaining my IPhone illegally. Please help me recover my phone!!!

    On July 31, a guy named Travis Willard send me a text interested in buying a phone that I was selling for $400. He said that the next day he would pay me $500 via paypal for the phone and the shipping. Next day received texts from him and emails from an allegedly email, [email protected] saying that to release me the money I had to send them a moneygram for $400. Because Mr. Willard sent 900 and they have to refund him 400. If a didn't do that I would not receive the money. I contacted paypal and they don't have any transaction pending for me. That man receive the phone the way he ask me to via UPS next day. So, he have the phone and the money. I was scammed by this man or individuals and the address that they gave is 1210 Wescuda RD, Phoenix Arizona 85027. Can you help me get my money o my phone?
